Support the Annual Reach Out Campaign - Strengthen Your Community
Your support is necessary to fund many of the Y programs and services that families that are in need use every day. Together we can ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn grow and thrive in a YMCA program.
How your contribution positively affects people's lives:
$100 teaches a child life saving swimming skills through a series of lessons.
$250 enrolls a child in a YMCA youth fitness program which will reduce the risk of childhood obesity and diabetes (already affecting 20% of today's youth.)
$750 enrolls two high school students in our College Path program, which provides SAT preparation and college application assistance.
$1,000 gives 10 at-risk teens a one year membership to the YMCA, providing them with a safe place to productively spend their out-of-school hours.
$5,000 supports two working families with one month of quality child care.
With your contribution to our annual fund, we are able to open our programs to children, youth and adults regardless of financial ability. Every dollar raised from this local campaign directly benefits the Charlestown YMCA. With your support hundreds of children will have the opportunity to participate in sports; leadership; camping and youth development programs while gaining new skills in a safe environment with the positive influence of adult and peer role models.
While programs may develop in one neighborhood, the strength of the Y is that we leverage great programs and take those to other communities that then benefit. Again, at the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away due to an inability to pay full fees. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy confident, connected and secure. We can only make that promise through the support of our donors to the Y’s Annual Fund.
Your gift to the Y’s Annual Fund is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
